Key points:The owner of the Scramble on the Hill café is worried her business will become a casualty of the droughtThe owner’s husband has a business in Melbourne’s CBD and fears the shop could become a “lunchhour” source The Scrambler on the Wall café opened in 2015 and has since expanded into the CBD with a small cafe, a cafe and two full-service eateries.
Owner Sarah Pinder said she and her husband, Daniel, were hoping to get the café opened by the end of the year.
“We were expecting it to take two to three weeks, which was actually our first business in Brisbane,” Ms Pinder told the ABC.
“It’s just so busy.”
People just rush to it.
They don’t get to spend any time there.
“I don’t know how we can do it, I can’t even imagine.”
Ms Pinder, who lives in South Brisbane, said her husband was “really worried” about the lack of customers at the cafe.
“He’s not happy,” she said.
“His main concern is it will become the lunch hour.”
Ms Rundle said the lack in business would lead to a financial blow to the shop, which she had already been working on for three years.
“The scrawniness of the place, it’s just really cramped, and we’re struggling to do business, especially with the climate in Queensland,” she told the Brisbane Times.
“If you want to have lunch, you’ve got to get there early, because it’s not even a lunchtime.”
Ms Trowbridge said the Scamper was the latest in a series of business closures.
“They’ve been closing for months now and I’m just really worried about it,” she added.
“This is going to be the next one, next one after that.”
Businesses are going to shut down and it’s going to become a disaster for the community.
“The Scramblers is one of three businesses that operate in Brisbane’s CBD, which is experiencing a severe dry spell.
The other businesses are the Little Shop, which has been closed since November, and the Scroungers, which have also been shut down since December.
